Brand: Bobbi Brown
Range: Lip Color – Shimmer Finish
Shade: Pink Apricot Shimmer #11
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • The Shimmer Finish range of Bobbi Brown Lip Colors feature light reflecting pearls for a highly reflective multidimensional colour.
  • Packed with luxurious butters and oils to nourish and condition lips, but I find that I still need to apply lip balm beforehand for added moisture for the shimmer finish to look their best.
  • Pink Apricot Shimmer is described as a “bright pink coral” with gold pearl shimmers.
  • Verdict: This will appeal to those that want a multidimensional finish without needing to layer on gloss for a luminous effect.  On a personal front, I find that shimmery lipsticks looks distracting on me,  and I much prefer shimmer on my eyes than lips

Brand: Revlon
Range: Super Lustrous Lipgloss
Shades: Berry Allure, Sugar Violet, Fuchsia Finery, Pink Pop, Pango Peach, Snow Pink, Super Natural, Rosy Future, Kiss Me Coral, Fatal Apple, Raising Rouge
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • The Super Lustrous Lipglosses are Revlon’s newest addition to their lip gloss range, and come in a silky formula that boosts hydration and subtly plumps lips.
  • Available in 12 shades in Australia, all of which are featured in this post.
  • I’m really impressed by the pigmentation of these lipgloss, in that even the sheerest formula gives a beautiful soft veil of colour that looks great even on its own.
  • Non-tacky and feels really smooth and moisturising with a high shine.
  • Verdict: These are really great quality for their price point, and can be worn on their own as a sheer MLBB gloss.  With wedding season at its peak at this time of year in Australia, these glosses are an affordable choice for the bridal party that’s easy to squeeze in an evening bag and touch up throughout the day.

Brand: Dior
Range: Jelly Lip Pen
Shade: Copacabana #516
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Dior Jelly Lip Pens were launched as part of the Birds of Paradise Summer 2013 limited edition collection.
  • They’re described as a “colour and shine jelly balm” and give a sheer glossy veil of moisture that’s lightweight and perfect for summer.
  • The jumbo pencil is a wind-up applicator, great for quick slicks on the go without needing to be sharpened.
  • Whilst it claims to contain the pigment of a lipstick, I’d say that it’s more like the pigment of a sheer lipstick.
  • The shade I received – Copacabana - was a sheer translucent nude beige that adds warmth to your lip tone with super fine shimmers that draw light to your lips.
  • The texture is buttery smooth, and has a similar jelly texture as the new Dior Addict Be Iconic lipsticks that keeps lips hydrated.
  • Compared to Clinique Chubby Stick in “Heaping Hazelnut”, “Copacabana” is similar in shade, perhaps slightly sheerer but delivers longer lasting moisture.
  • Available in 4 shades – you can check out the other shades at Paris B’s review at her blog My Women Stuff.
  • Verdict: Dior’s Jelly Lip Pen will appeal to those that like their lips dressed in a shimmery veil of moisture with a hint of colour.  Personally I like a bit more colour on the lips & prefer the popsicle finish of Dior Addict Be Iconic Lipsticks.

Applied without any lip balm.

RRP: $47 AUD

Brand: Sunday Riley
Range: Creme Gloss Sheer Impact Lip Gloss
Shade: Blackberry Crush (Shimmer)
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Sunday Riley products are highly sought after for their cutting edge formulas, breathable application, rich colour and high performance.
  • Creme Gloss Sheer Impact Lip Gloss certainly doesn’t disappoint – it’s super conditioning with Sunflower Seed Oil and Vitamin C to boost collagen, and is non-tacky with a long wearing high shine.
  • Available in 9 shades in a range of finishes from semi-translucent to shimmery to intense pops of vibrant colour.  From reading other reviews it seems the shade range is generally sheer tints of colour.
  • The scent is subtle but hard to describe – a cross between the standard scent of a gloss and what I imagine must be the seed oils.
  • The sheer purple in Blackberry Crush gives lips a cool tone finish that can be worn alone for a fresh youthful finish or layered on top of lipstick to give it a cool twist.
  • I like how the shimmers are just enough to give a high shine finish without going overboard into a sparkle finish.
  • Paraben free.
  • Verdict:  The first thing you notice when applying the gloss is how amazingly soft and smooth it makes your lips feels & gives them a pillowy high gloss finish.   Give it a try if you like your gloss to double as a lip moisturiser with a sheer glossy veil of colour.

Brand: Dior
Range: Dior Addict Be Iconic Gloss
Shade: Delice, Diablotine, Spring Ball, Princess
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • The new Dior Addict Gloss gives lips a mirror-like shine, with a gel formula enriched with hyaluronic acid spheres that plump and moisturise lips for a voluminous effect.
  • Available in a carrousel of 24 new colours in 3 finishes – Shimmering, Pearly and Pure.
  • I was sent 4 shimmery shades to feature – Delice (peach), Diablotine (coral), Spring Ball (milky peach) and Princess (baby pink).
  • Feels very comforting and instantly soothes lips, effortlessly conceals lip flaws transforming them into a soft plump pout.
  • The gel finish is really pliable and glides on easily making it really tempting to over apply, but you only really need one application to achieve a mouth-watering glossy lip.
  • Verdict: If you love the popsicle finish of the new Dior Addict Be Iconic lipsticks but find that it lacks oopmh, you’ll love the juicy finish that this gloss adds to your pout.  The iridescent finish in the shimmer range glimmers in all angles, making your lips ultra dimensional.    Diablotine was the most pigmented out of the 4 shades I received, and compliments pigmented lips to give a juicy coral finish.   I’d recommend Delice, Spring Ball and Spring Ball only to those with fair lip tones, or are looking for a finishing gloss on a nude lip.

RRP: $49 AUD
